Description: An herbaceous member of the honeysuckle family which I collected from Zhongdian, China in 2000. A softly hairy slow growing perennial forming a small running rootstock, with laxly upright shaggy stems bearing remarkable soft foliage. Where the opposite leaves are fused into each other giving the illusion of the stem passing through them (perfoliate), becoming more pronounced towards the terminal inflorescence of small funnelled purplish flowers held June-July. Succeeded by long lasting showy red fruit. For a cool spot in sun or part shade in a well drained soil enriched with humus.
